Chelsea have announced the signing of 23-year old Michael Hector from Reading.
The young central defender will return to Reading for the remainder of the season, following signing this five year contract.
This signing will come as quite a surprise to many as Chelsea have gone from chasing Everton's young prodigy, Stones, to signing a relatively unknown quantity in Hector.
Hector will join a large contingent of young Chelsea players out on loan.
If Hector is to be a possible replacement for John Terry in the coming years, one thing is for sure, he will need to impress a large number of people before returning to Stamford Bridge.
